New Hounslow Jobcentre opens


TODAY, as part of the Plan for Jobs, the new temporary Jobcentre in Hounslow officially opened its doors, giving jobseekers more access to support and the latest opportunities.

The new Jobcentre is located on the ground floor of the Treaty Shopping Centre.

Work Coaches at the new site in Hounslow will join thousands of colleagues up and down the country at the forefront of the Government’s drive to get 500,000 people currently out of work into jobs by the end of the summer as part of the ‘Way to Work’ campaign.

The Jobcentre has 36 Work Coaches, some of whom joined the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) as part of the successful recruitment drive to hire 13,500 new Work Coaches across the country.

Each new Work Coach will help local people looking for work in Hounslow with one-on-one tailored support to find their next role.

Mims Davies MP, Minister for Employment said:
“We know this has been a challenging time for many people and that’s why we’re boosting our DWP Jobcentre support in every community of the UK, including here in Hounslow.

“Every customer benefits from having a dedicated Work Coach. They know the local jobs market and work with local businesses to match jobseekers to the latest opportunities.

“It’s brilliant to see our Plan for Jobs in action, from Kickstart to Sector-based Work Academy Programmes, our Work Coaches are there to help people thrive and progress in work.”

Hounslow Jobcentre Plus is one of the new temporary sites announced by DWP earlier this year, building on the existing 639 Jobcentres across the UK.

The additional space will accommodate new Work Coaches recruited in Hounslow, helping more people to transform their lives through tailored employment support.

Joel Manangan is one of those new recruits based at the new Hounslow Jobcentre.

DWP Work Coach Joel Manangan said:
“I enjoy supporting my most vulnerable customers to help them overcome barriers and secure employment. I find building confidence in my customers by utilising the provisions available the most rewarding part of my role.”

Rishabh Sekhri is the Customer Service Leader overseeing the new site, bringing with him 12 years’ of DWP experience.
